“Invitation to Dance - It’s a Dance. And sometimes they turn the lights off in this ballroom. But we’ll dance anyway, you and I. Even in the Dark. Especially in the Dark.

HORRORPHILE'S CODA GRIND FOR ALL HALLOW'S EVE

October 31st 2012 09:13
Halloween title credit

I decided to wrap up my time on Orble with a doozy.

Here’s the challenge.

It’s all about favourites, and in one case an ultimate: my True Believers’ and mine.

All you have to do is copy and past the questions below into the comment box and fill in your answers.

You’ll have to think a little, but hey, that’s half the fun. Of course, don’t think too hard, go with your gut reaction. A few of the latter questions will have a nudge to keep your answer on track.

The incentive to undertaking this challenge is that I will be choosing the person whose answers tickle my dark fancy the most and will send them a lucky dip prize pack of several cult/classic DVDs and/or Blu-rays. It’s a gesture of thanks to my loyal subscribers and followers.

So here are the 31 questions – my coda grind - to tie in with October 31st: The Eve of All Hallow's ... Hallowe’en.

Where was the favorite decade category? I need to be able to wax more poetic about the glory days of the 70s then I've been able to. But I've loved having the opportunity to do this. This rocked!

Thanks, hon!!
